Storyline

A Dream Comes True - Superstar Gam Sa-yeong Height: 169cm Weight: 70kg A left-hander with small hands The underdog pitcher who threw his best - Gam Sa-yeong. The year is 1982, the first year of professional baseball in Korea. Gam Sa-yeong gets an offer to join the Sammi Superstars just because the team does not have any left-hander pitchers. Unlike its name, however, Sammi does not have any superstars at all. Far from being an ace, Gam spends most of his time as a relief pitcher, closing out hopeless, losing games. Nobody expects him to win. Any time that Gam takes the mound, the other team cheers in the knowledge that a win is all-but assured. And one day, the most unlikely, miraculous chance appears for Gam. He gets to start against the best team in the KBL, the OB Bears. OB's ace, Park Cheol-sun, is in the midst of a 20-game winning streak, and is most anxious to keep that streak alive. No pitcher on the Superstars wants to go up against Park and his formidable winning streak. No ... Written by CJ Entertainment

Great baseball movie
13 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie deals with the real life story of Kam Sa Young, a leftie for the Inchon Sammy Superstars, one of the six teams of the nascent Korean Baseball Organization.

The year was 1982 and the Korean Baseball Organization was established with six teams, each owned by a corporate sponsor. Kam Sa Young was actually an employee of the Sammy Group and a pitcher for the office team. His love for baseball leads him to try out for the new professional team. To his surprise and the surprise of his friends and family, he makes the team. The reason being he was the only leftie available.

This is a classic underdog baseball movie. The Superstars were a terrible team during the inaugural season, losing 18 in a row at one point. Kam Sa Young was a terrible pitcher as well, used for long relief and for mop up situations. However, his love of the game keeps him going and motivated, until he gets a chance to pitch the biggest game of his young career.

One a fateful night that season, he gets a surprise start against the best pitcher at that time, Park Chol Won of the OB Bears, who was riding a 19 game winning streak.(!)

I liked this movie for many reasons. First I'm a big baseball fan, and I think the love of the sport transcends all nationalities. It avoids the typical clichés of most underdog sports movies. The team member squabble during hard times, but they remain loyal to each other. The movie has no villains to root against. It tries to tell us that is most situations, we don't fight against a visible enemy but our demons. And ending will surprise many viewers, as it was NOT what I expected.

Overall, this is a heartwarming, well paced, and well acted sports movie. I recommend to everyone.
